Hello,

Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is Joe and I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.

I see you have stated that the vehicle will not start however can you please elaborate on does it crank and not start or does not crank over either?

Thanks,

Joe

today it does not Crank at all. lights come, dash cycles and nothing
Ford Mechanic: Joe, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok, How about before when it simply would not start...... did it crank then and not start or related to this problem it does not and has not cranked and thus not starting? This helps with diagnosis direction.

Thanks,

Joe

Have you had the battery tested yet?

Battery tested good. full charge
Ford Mechanic: Joe, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

This was tested with a load tester or voltmeter?

If you turn on the headlights and try starting, do they slightly dim or go out?

Is the check engine light staying on? and if so have you pulled the codes yet?

Thanks,

Joe

Load tester
Have not pulled the codes
Lights dont dim .
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Check engine light is on
Ford Mechanic: Joe, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok, I would next pull the codes to see what codes are being sent. You very well may have security codes. Esp if the security light is flashing and if it is please follow this link to relearn:

If that is not the problem please pull the codes and we can continue.

Thank you!

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey
